Follow Friday/ Book Blogger Hop (12)

Oh dear, at last we have our blogger back, and now on to a very late friday post (even though there's only about an hour left of friday for me).

 Follow Friday is hosted by Parajunkee!

Q. The Blogger Apocalypse made me a little emotional. What is the most emotional scene in a book that you have read lately?

The only book that's made me cry recently is Looking for Alaska by John Green. It's beautiful and emotional, on such a deep level that it really makes you think, and I'm not ashamed for shedding a few tears with that book.

Other books that have made me cry more for what has happened in the plot rather than the depth and meaning behind it. Harry Potter obviously, but that was a long time ago so. I also cried like a baby at the end of Monsters of Men by Patrick Ness, and I probably would of cried at the end of A Killing Frost (part of the Tomorrow series by John Marsden) if I hadn't been so in shock. I also cried at the end of Mockingjay, but that was mainly because I was unhappy with the way it ended. 

This sounds like a lot considering I'm not that much of a cry baby.

Book Blogger Hop

Are you going to Book Expo America (BEA) and/or the Book Blogger Convention (BBC) this year?

I'd love to, but I live in the UK and circumstance and time are just not my friend with this one.


  1. I wish I could go to the BEA this year. I need to check out Monsters of Men! Happy Friday! New follower.

  2. That would be a bit of a trip for you from the UK. :)


  3. Hopping through. I really want to read Looking for Alaska. I've heard so many great things.
    My Hop

  4. I just bought my first John Green book (Will Grayson, Will Grayson) - I'll have to check out Looking for Alaska as well! New follower :)

  5. Hi & Happy Friday!

    I am a new follower :)

    My FF for this week is here :)

    Have a nice weekend.

  6. I don't like reading books that make me cry. I'll do it if is an accident but I will be really mad about it.

  7. I haven't read Alaska. For some reason, I like books that make me cry.

  8. Hopping by:) I'm not going either since I don't live in the US.
    I can't name only on emotional scene because I read a lot of emotional books lately (like Kate Mosse's and Kate Morton's books).

    Have a great weekend!

  9. Hello! Stopping by on the blog hop!!
    That sounds like a really good book!
    ~Happy Reading!~

  10. I THOUGHT I'd be going to BEA this year, but circumstance dictated otherwise. There's always next year, though!

    (Is there anything similar to BEA in the UK?)


Thanks for stopping by! :)
